COAL-OIL MIXTURES: A GOOD IDEA FROM DOE

The use of coal-oil mixtures (COM)--an alternative fuel concept studied by two units of the Department of Energy (DOE)--is briefly explained and discussed here. If coal-oil mixtures were used in combustion units that now burn residual oil only, the demand for coal could be increased, and the residual oil requirements could be reduced substantially. Components and operation of a typical COM preparation plant are outlined, and both economic and marketing aspects of COM are considered.
